Critics say Trump’s support of Bible study in public schools is in violation of the constitution.

President Donald Trump is cheering on the move to bring Bible literacy classes to public schools.

“Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!” Trump said in a tweet following a report on Fox & Friends that six states have introduced bills that would permit the study of the Bible in public schools.

Advocates argue these bills could cross the line separating church and state and are being used by Christians to promote their faith in the public system.
